The Steering Committee’s meeting of the “Support to Media Reforms in Serbia” project focusing on media literacy development in pre-university education in Serbia, as well as the strengthening of public media services, was held today at the Ministry of Culture and Information.
A new project team with Russell Peacegood, David Hayward and Saša Mirković at the helm will be supporting the work on developing these areas and project activities.
Assistant Minister of Culture and Information Slavica Trifunović underscored that the attention of public at large was directed to this project designed to systemically regulate the field of media literacy and contribute to the whole society’s development. She pointed out that this issue took centre-stage in not only our country and region, but the whole of Europe.
The project is intended to provide support to the Working Group tasked with developing a manual for advancement and development of media literacy in pre-university education in Serbia. In the coming months, the Working Group will be working on this publication for teachers aimed at strengthening their knowledge and skills.
In addition, the implementation of workshops, events and panel discussions for journalists, editors and managers of public service broadcasters Radio Television Serbia and Radio Television Vojvodina, respectively, intended to help create quality programming of public interest was discussed at the Steering Committee’s meeting.
